From Food for Life by Neal Barnard, M.D.. This is the simplest pancake or waffle recipe I've ever used and it is great for folks who are wheat intolerant or don't want to use soy or flour products. These moist pancakes have no added fat and taste great!
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 Tablespoon raw sugar or other sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

Let stand a few minutes until batter is thick. If too thick, add additional water to make batter easily pourable.

Pour into heated, oil-sprayed waffle iron and cook for 10 minutes without lifting the lid, or pour into lightly greased covered frying pan and cook for a few minutes on each side until slightly brown on each side.

Serve with favorite topping. Enjoy!
